26 Industrial, Urban and Worker Identity Transitions in Nuremberg Following the Weimar Republic, fascism and the Second World War, German workers did not return enthusiastically to a ‘class’ agenda. Their responses were framed by the weakly adversarial trade union policies and an SDP whose mainstream, after witnessing the compulsory unification of the socialists and communists in East Germany and the spread of the politically oppressive regime of state socialism in Russia throughout Eastern Europe, said farewell to socialism at the Godesberg conference in 1956.
